Anthony Mackie Tells Rappers to Fall Back from Acting — Say What!
‘Hurt Locker’ actor Anthony Mackie discussed rappers-ternt-actors recently. “I don’t go to a hospital and let the janitor perform surgery on me, you know what I mean? But if you look at what Ice Cube, LL Cool J, and Queen Latifah have been able to do, it’s ridiculous to say their talents should be disregarded because they started out in music. At the same time, you’d be hard-pressed to find a Sam Jackson these days, because young actors wouldn’t be given those roles now. The film business is destroying itself by not breeding talent or nurturing young actors- and that’s why all movies suck now.” Oh word? You not feeling Bow Wow’s acting, doggy? [Details]
In response to making Forbes Magazine’s “Hip Hop Cash Kings” list, Soulja Boy said “oh swag.” “To tell you the truth, I just seen my name on there…I was like, ‘Damn, I’m on the Forbes list. Like swag.‘ Everybody’s talking about it, my whole city, my whole hood, and all that.” [RapFix]
So, apparently this group 3OH!3 met when one of them stalked the other, after becoming obsessed with his public access tv show. “My mom thought I was a real weirdo, but I would watch public access television, and I remember seeing awesome videos that Nat made. I was like, ‘Man, I want to meet that kid!’ ” one of the said about the other one. “So I’m going to University of Colorado-Boulder, and I take a physics class, and I’m sitting in the class and I’m like, ‘Oh my God, it’s the guy from TV!’…and that’s how we met.” Stalkers always have the best “how we met” stories.
